The Dubai-based carrier’s new service covers COVID-19 health expenses and quarantine costs and offers passengers more confidence and peace of mind on their travel journey

Dubai-based airline flydubai has announced today that passengers booking with flydubai for travel between 01 September and 30 November 2020 will automatically receive free global cover for COVID-19.

The new service covers passengers’ health expenses and quarantine costs if diagnosed with COVID-19 during their trip and is valid for 31 days from the time they take their first flight on their itinerary. The service enables passengers to benefit from coverage for their medical expenses up to EUR 150,000 and quarantine costs up to EUR 100 per day for 14 days.

Hamad Obaidalla, Chief Commercial Officer at flydubai said: “The safety of our passengers and crew remains our highest priority. The new COVID-19 cover we are offering to our passengers will encourage more people to travel with ease of mind knowing that they will be looked after at every step of their journey. We see the demand for travel starting to increase as more countries gradually lift restrictions on international travel. Safeguarding the passenger journey with added precautions and enhanced procedures will help to stimulate the flow of trade and tourism globally.”

The service is valid for all bookings done through flydubai.com, the flydubai mobile app, the flydubai Customer Centre or Travel Shops, the Holidays by flydubai portal, travel agents or any of flydubai’s travel partners.
